Praxis Safety & Accountability Audit Tool Kit

General Material
Training Tools

This toolkit is a critical how-to guide for communities assessing their institutional responses to violence against women. Specifically, it details the process for assessing the criminal justice system response to domestic violence. The method, commonly referred to as a safety audit, community assessment, and/or institutional analysis, has been applied to other institutional processes to improve outcomes for women and children, including child protection, family court, custody determinations, supervised visitation and exchange centers, and sexual assault criminal cases, and it has been adapted to examine disparity in foster care placements for African American children. Intended for local community use, the guides, templates, illustrations, and check lists outline the Audit’s philosophical underpinnings, clarify the data collection steps and methodologies, and provide a knowledge base for a team’s work.
